Just took by my new '04 WR450 out for the first ride, and all I have to say is HELLLLLLL YEAHHHHHHHH this thing rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cry: :cry:

Compared to my 400 its faster, more agile, way more powerfull and fells much lighter. And that is completly stock! I was only out for about 30 min on some power lines by my house, so I cannot wait to get out for a real ride :cry:

But there is one issue, the head pipe and silencer got hotter than anything I have ever seen. It is running pretty lean, so maybe that is it. Anyone have a similar experiance

I ordered the JD jetting kit the other day and it should be here wed. so i will see if fixes it.

Don't sweat the heat you are getting from the pipe. Thats normal. Were you riding at night? Thats why you noticed it! Make sure you complete the free mods i.e grey wire, throttle stop, and snorkle. You think its fast now just do the mods and you'll be saying its to much bike!! :cry:

Mine is canadian also, but the JD kit should address the jetting issues. The concern with the heat is that I have never seen an exhaust system get so hot. It was so hot that if water touched it, the water wouldn't just evaporate and steam like normal it would skip accross it like a frying pan that is way to hot.

I have an 02 wr426 I put a full white bros. system on it and lost a brand new pair of pants instantly burnt. Had to put a carbon fiber pipe gaurd on it they get hot but you will need the jets badly if you do all the free mods.Like some one else said you will be thinking I thought this thing was fast before.You might have to put it back stock just to get used to the power.I road a KX 250 before my four stroke just has so much power and top end compared to the two smoke quick power. :cry: :cry:
